Miami Dolphins have first-overall pick in latest Tankathon Mock Draft


We are officially a quarter of the way through the 2019 NFL season, and the Miami Dolphins have finally landed at the top of the 2020 draft order.  Their recent loss to the Los Angeles Chargers dropped them 0-4 on the season.  Which means, they have their pick of the litter when it comes to the highly coveted 2020 QB class.

According to Tankathon's latest mock draft, Miami finally gets the QB they covet - selecting Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa with the first-overall pick.  In 2019, Tagovailoa has thrown for 1,738 yards and 23 touchdowns with a staggering 0 interceptions.  He's good.  Very good. However, if you'd like to follow the other QBs in this year's class, you can find our tracker HERE

But that's not the only pick Miami has in the first-round.  After all, they will head into April's draft with a war chest of draft picks, including three first-round picks.  Based on Tankathon's updated draft order, Miami also has pick #6 and #25.

Aside from Tua Tagovailoa, the Dolphins also select Iowa pass-rusher A.J Epenesa and Florida CB C.J Henderson.

Truth is, there's still a ton of football to be played, and no one knows how things will shape up between now and next April.  But what we do know, is that the Dolphins have the chance to jump-start their rebuild, by acquiring talented players in the first-round.  Miami isn't one player away.  Which is why the Dolphins' front office thought it was necessary to stockpile draft picks.

In the end, no one knows how the draft order will shape up.  We also don't know how Chris Grier and the rest of the Dolphins' organization view this year's class.  But what we do know is that if Miami wants to land a once in a generation passer, they will need to continue down their current path.  After all, they are on pace to be the worst team in NFL history.  Which means everything is going EXACTLY as planned.
